"< Prima’, ‘seconda’, and ‘terza’ simply refer to the different versions, first. second and third version. . . Your suggestion . . . that some of the pieces are intended to be played by three guitars tuned a fifth…"

"P.S, In 1976 Richard Pinnell claimed that Corbetta used octave stringing on the 4th and 5th courses for his first three books and that the "French" tuning was new in 1671. Another unsubstantiated idea still repeated without question. I…"

"Thanks for your detailed comments. For practical reasons I will copy-paste mine into it.  < I understand what you are saying, but don’t agree. In his later books      there are several pieces that have a…"

"The last section of my study of Foscarini  www.monicahall.co.uk/foscarini is a detailed comparison of Foscarini’s “Libro secondo” with surviving books of Colonna. It is reasonably certain that all of Foscarini’s material…"

Lex Eisenhardt replied to Lex Eisenhardt's discussion The guitar in the sixteen-seventies
"I fail to see how this would possibly impact Foscarini’s tuning. Although Foscarini may have copied parts from Colonna’s introduction, I’m not aware that he copied the tuning chart and check as well. Stefano Pesori made a…"

Monica Hall replied to Lex Eisenhardt's discussion The guitar in the sixteen-seventies
"However you are happy to ignore anything that does not support your own theory. Foscarini's charts are included in his earlier Secondo libro which is a plagiarized version of books by Colonna and he has included them with other information in…"

"Again, I would prefer not to ignore those checks which indicate that they are in octaves. Best, Lex"

Martyn Hodgson replied to Lex Eisenhardt's discussion The guitar in the sixteen-seventies
"Thank you for this Lex. Yes, as said earlier, the lute tablature tuning checks serve the same purpose as those on the guitar (ie to check whether 'notes' are sounding the same in whatever octave).  Accordingly, I'm not convinced…"

Lex Eisenhardt replied to Lex Eisenhardt's discussion The guitar in the sixteen-seventies
"Hi Martyn,   There is at last some room for optimism.   The tuning information included in a tablature example, in sources for the baroque lute, are quite similar indeed. In those, the courses on the fingerboard are compared to one another…"

Martyn Hodgson replied to Lex Eisenhardt's discussion The guitar in the sixteen-seventies
"Dear Lex, First, best wishes for the season and let's hope 2021 will be a bit better than 2020 for concertising! But apologies for coming to this thread rather late. One thing stands out to me:  it's probably unwise to assume any…"

">  You will find this at www.monicahall.co.uk/corbetta in Section 1 Chapter 5. It does not take into account that, also with Corbetta, there might be a difference between strumming and plucking. Strummed chords probably can be…"

Monica Hall replied to Lex Eisenhardt's discussion The guitar in the sixteen-seventies
"Well – you haven’t yet ‘fessed to wilfully ignoring the Italian preface to La guitarre royale (1671) which must have been written by Corbetta himself. It is the closest insight we will ever get into his own ideas about how his…"

"Mea culpa. I thought too soon that it was finished, and, somewhat naively, I had not foreseen that it would cause confusion. Anyway, sorry for the inconvenience."

"P.S. It would help if you identified the different versions of the article too - there seem to be at least 3 with this latest."
